Im trying to download an antivirus software on a different computer so i could fix my infected laptop and im doing this by downloading the antivirus file on a usb and opening it on my laptop. This pop up is appearing " the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see wheather you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program ". Both the laptops run on 64 bit but i dont know why the file is not opening. Please help

It's possible the infection itself is preventing the install. My advice would be to start a thread in the Virus Removal Forum after reading the Pinned posts showing what logs to post.
